Well the walleye are starting to stack up at the south end of Lake Wpg. Three of us fished Tuesday and landed in the neighbourhood of 30 most eater size but about 6 way too big to keep. No pike YET. Sure looking like March will be a GREAT month.

Now you're talking Ed, you need a break anyway!!! I'll be back out on the lake Saturday, there's room for more. If you can't make this weekend, try for the following........

The bite is hot and will remain this way until the end of the season which falls on March 31st.

If this weekend is not in the cards, I guess you'll have to settle for reading my reports. grin.gif

I won't mention the on ice 'eye-fry we're planing, that would simply be way to cruel....whoooooops that one slipped!

Another day out on Lake Winnipeg and another productive day on the walleye trail!!! BY Tuesday's comparison, we never caught the numbers, however we did catch some that got us a little excited! The largest walleye's landed today were both in the low seven pound class, once again there was a few more heavy fish that ended up shaking loose. blush.gif

All toll the group landed seventeen walleye, probably missed just as many.

I did take pic's of the two large fish of the day, but I don't have a clue on to resize them, therefore I can't post them!!!

Rick, I'll be more than happy to foreword them onto you if you'll post them!

Catmendo,

My spring break is next week. Is there any room to come fish? Do you have any recommendations on a place to stay? Any information would be great. You can also email me [email protected]. Thanks.

Actually, a friend of mine just called and asked if I wanted to go up for a trip March 17-19 so I no longer have to worry about it.

Thanks Rob, I appreciate your kind offer to post those pic's! My computers skills are at a bare minimal, but I vow that one day soon I will take the time a learn how to resize and post photo's, in the mean time I thank you!

Yes those are nice fish, nothing exceptional size wise, but nice coloring and conditioning!

There's a group of us heading out on the lake Wednesday morning, the weather forecast is calling for favorable temps, so it should be interesting and the fish should be aggressive.

If all goes well and providing we catch a few 'eyes, we'll do an on ice 'eye-fry! grin.gif I'm not sure as to why, but they're always popular with the crowd!!! wink.gif

Thanks again Rob!

Looking forward to seeing everyone in june for some cats. See you guys soon. Nooner

Sorry for not getting back to U sooner. I have been teaching all week and not checking the posts very quickly. Yes your licence is good until the end of April even though our season down south here closes on the 31st March. We will be out on the lake most of next week looking for some hawgs.

It is really nice meeting guys out on the ice/river who are on this forum.

Well I must thank Stu for his hospitality and letting us stay at his place and pointing us in the right direction. Really got into some fish. We caught several greenies both days and had fun chatting with Stu about the river and the area. Stu really knows his stuff. Stu and cats on the red is the cats a$$ :coo

      Heard that too. Also heard 38 was closed for a but north of rapids due to flooding.    I know the water really came up when I was up last week compared to when I was there in April.

      Someone said 4 inches in the past week, more expected this weekend. A few roads, including county roads that are asphalt ended up with sink holes. Lakes are the highest I've ever seen in the 30+ years coming to the area and now living here. Several people lost trees Tues night
    • smurfy
      Dang Kettle  that bites. Great to hear fishing was good though.   How much rain you get up that way?
    • Dash 1
      50 in 6 hours is great. Boat issues really put a damper on a great day though. Hope you get it fixed quickly.  
    • Kettle
      Well boat finally got "fixed" and I picked it up Saturday. Last week worked 96 hrs so Sunday wanted the day to fish alone. Boat ran great out to the spot, 4 miles or so. Fishing was great boated over 50 walleye in about 6 hrs. Caught them lindy rigging, jigging and bobber fishing watching them on the live scope. Kept 6 between 18-20 inches. After using the trolling motor for the entire time fishing, go to fire up the tiller and it bogs down and dies. Another 4 hours running the trolling motor back to the launch. Fortunate it's under warranty. Bummer of a day but fishing was great landed one about 7 lbs too

      Terrible news for that area especially this being such a prime time for tourism. We can only hope for dryer days ahead so they can get back to normal.

      For those not in the area, the Lake Vermilion area got anywhere from 5-10" of rain the other day (depending on your source). The lake is rising rapidly affecting docks, shorelines, and cabins. The Littlefork River that runs through Cook overran its banks and flooded the town. It's not expected to crest until at least Saturday, which means things will get worse. Places such as the Comet, the Muni, the library, and many other businesses are flooded. Many roads in the area have been destroyed by flooding as well. There's lots of damage. Below are two quick links.   https://www.northernnewsnow.com/2024/06/20/floodwaters-inundate-city-cook-evacuation-location-open/   https://www.mprnews.org/story/2024/06/20/cleanup-continues-flooding-in-northeast-minnesota-southern-minnesota-rivers-rising

      Apparently just the motorized portage.   If you paddle you are good to go.
    • CigarGuy
      The only way I could do it is running parallel to the shoreline on the "L", but with the wake from the boats and my rocky shoreline, the waves just bounce it around too much, even with bumpers tied off. My neighbors dock is recessed off the main channel, I'm going to sweet talk him into letting me dock it there.

      They closed the Trout Lake Portage down washed out.
